I want one now..Enough dicking around.
Who has one? They are fawkin hard to find!
because its superior
Why don't you call Mike rock and get one then.
who is that ?
here is some info on why
Mike rock makes barrels. They are good.
to the right guy this time
I want the tws.. but my wife wont let me spend the 2k for it..
go in the for sale forums, you'll see 5r barrels every once in a while.
Good luck though, they cost a pretty penny. IMHO you should just get a Remmy 700 from GAP.
5R just means 5 groove, numerous manufacturers makes barrels that are just as good or better.
the r is the radiusing of the groove.
Thats the thing i really want
At first I thought this said 5" barrel and was scared.
Get one from Rock Creek then.
i believe snipercountrypx.com has some 5R remmys left. I also know of a shop in Largo, FL that has a 700 5R mil-spec in stock as we speak. I saw it last weekend and fondled it along with the two 700PSS rifles they had. 949.99 for the 5R...
I too read the review on them...they have a slight edge accuracy-wise on the Police 700's but i see it as down the line youll prolly be re-barreling a target/precision rifle anyway so get the less expensive one and take the 150 extra you woulda spent on the 5R and put it towards a Krieger/Obermeyer/ Rock Creek barrel fund
Ive had a Mark4 LR/T for a while now with no rifle to put it on.....its killin me.
Too good of a deal to pass up or something?
Kind of on topic - what's a good price for a 700 in .308, with just the regular barrel?
Depends on the version.
the 26" heavy barrel with a varmint laminated stock can be had at wally world (if you're lucky enough to still live around one that sells guns) for a bit over $600
well kinda....my local dealer offered to beat SWFA's price by 10 dollars on it and i was planning on a precision rifle build at that point. So i decided to get the glass outta the way and worry about the rifle last. Well fastforwarding a few months, i never got around to savin for the bolt rifle to go with it and my Leupold sits in its box.
I also cant make up my mind on whether i wanna go reasonable priced 700P or double the cost for an FN SPR. Or should i just kill my savings for a GA precision rifle lol.
Im probably gonna do the 700P...i dont shoot enough to justify the other two...plus, if i do my part itll be plenty accurate.
